Most disappointed to see these new barriers, which have been installed in the past few weeks on Via Urbis Romanae, Colchester. A complaint is winging way to @essexhighways and the location will be added to our barriers map. What a waste of ... [more]

My latest @InTandemTshirts blog post is a review of the new (red!!!) cycle tracks on Liverpool Street, Salford which I think are pretty good! I'd love to hear people's views on it, particularly if you've ridden it! ... [more]

Someone in my town has crocheted special Queen’s Jubilee bollard sleeves which may be the most brilliantly British thing I have ever seen.

Thank you to everyone who's made this happen. They're looking beautiful. We love it. I hope we can do more around Sheffield to make streets for walking and cycling @olivercoppard @min_esh @RuthMilsom

The tweet below is good, but this picture is better. Normal clothes, no helmets...

Excellent ride this year. Perfect weather and perfect company. No mechanicals either! Here's a picture from the Ely start, 10am.

Midblock bulbout to provide an accessible sidewalk around a street tree

Took my new bike for a spin along the Busway to St Ives - with coffee & cake on my mind at the freshly opened Commute Cafe, 33 The Broadway. V tasty food + friendly staff. A new cycle cafe in Cambs 👏😍

Double yellows don't seem to be working. Nice parking @OfficialTfGM van too

Tip Top TM for cyclists in Battersea.

What on earth is this @CambsCC? You say you want to adopt LTN 1/20 and then you go and ruin one of Cambridge’s best cut-throughs! Good luck to trailers and cargo bikes trying to get through this 😢 @alexbeckett @HilCoxCondron can ... [more]

This is Fishwives Causeway. It is an ‘alternative route’ for those cyclists wanting to avoid Porty High St/SHLR junction if heading to/coming from Portobello Rd. Is it now free storage for a local business at the expense of safe cycling ... [more]

Deep sigh. No, this is not acceptable. #SouthWestCityWay

Not sure what this cyclists dismount sign is for. Tiny private access road that the cycleway crosses.

Clearly these are routes that the council want to encourage people on bikes to use (rather than the A6). So why isn’t a road like this filtered to encourage drivers to use the A6?

Another piece of cycling infra gone in on #uxbridgeroad well done @LBHF 👏👏

Was fun having a spin on @rideonleicester’s new cargo bike today, which will carry ebikes to docking stations across the city - seen here on the newly opened Abbey Park Rd foot and cycle bridge. https://news.lei ... [more]

Sneaky how the final orcas move closer to the kerb, with the first one camouflaged within the word "END". Ninewells Avenue. @dundeecycling @RantyHighwayman

This is my path through town to get home. Nerves of steel 🤨

This barrier has appeared on the @Sustrans NCN12 route between Graveley and Letchworth. Hard for any cyclist to deal with, it will exclude all those using non-standard or adapted cycles. It should be removed. @WeAreCyclingUK @hertscycli ... [more]

Thank you Thank you Thank you @GreaterCambs New lower street signs now on Blackhall Road Junction give full view of the traffic both north and south

“Courtesy crossings”: top shelf bullshit where we ask drivers to avoid killing pedestrians - unless pushing the brake is too hard. “They provide a place where drivers can stop safely to allow pedestrians to cross. However, drivers ar ... [more]

Love to have to navigate 3 lots of these when I can hear the engine noise of speeding drivers on the parallel dual carriageway.

New filter on Staveley Road: children on bikes & scooters, pedestrians with dogs. New planting including four new cherry trees. Just in time for cherryblossom season this week.

A new era begins for Richborne Terrace, at the junction with the A3 Clapham Road. (Reminder that traffic on the A3 went down during the monitoring for the Oval to Stockwell #LTN, now made permanent).

Central Bangalore's cute streets 💚

#Bedford High Street has no cycle lane & insufficient width for any vehicle to overtake a cyclist safely. All cyclists should therefore adopt the primary position by riding down the centre of the carriageway as recommended in the guidelin ... [more]

Over the last decade, Leicester City Council has steadily been revamping the city centre streets, the majority of which had not been touched for 20-30 years. Using high-quality materials,building segregated cycle routes, & expanding the ... [more]

This used to be part of an A road gyratory in New Cross. It now looks great with trees in blossom and today has young kids cycling. Mad to think this used to have tens of thousands of vehicles a day passing through.

When your bike ride to the new City Hall goes wrong… towpath gated shut at Cody Dock. This can’t be right, surely? ⁦@willnorman⁩

Seems like a metaphor for Bolton Council's attitude to cycling. The red sign represents the (evidence-based) officers and the blue one represents the (social media-based) Council Executive.

I’ve been less critical of others when it comes to compromises in Kingston’s cycle network, but this is unforgivably bad. Completely unacceptable design.

Britain’s first Zero Emission Zone or ZEZ has begun in Oxford city centre this morning. Only electric vehicles or those exempt can enter free of charge 7am - 7pm seven days a week

A ‘live’ cycle parking indicator telling you exactly how many spaces are left. We’ve done this for years with car parks but I’ve not seen one for bikes before (although I expect it's not the first). [Particularly useful for peopl ... [more]

Ooo, exciting new cycling infrastructure in Cambridge

Segregated cycle lane on Westminster bridge looking great

@RantyHighwayman Can't help but wonder if making these old filters more accessible for active travel would make them more useful for emergency services rather than them ending up being obstructed by parking?

Another week, a different car is now blocking the Cargo Bay Rental rendering it unusable. This bay has not been accessible for over 2.5 weeks now and @hackneycouncil don't seem to want to do anything @metecoban92 @ZENCityfringe Cnr Bounda ... [more]

Pedestrians on the left.... clown bicycles on right...? Or perhaps it's an ancient fertility symbol? Spotted on Wootton Way Maidenhead earlier. #cycling #activetravel 🚴

Mill Road, Cambridge this morning. A quartet of signs on an already narrow and often busy footway. Just enough space for the wheelchair user to pass, but luckily a workman was nearby at the fifth. More signs beyond. Three weeks of this to c ... [more]

My fb 'memories' dredged up this photo of me 1 year ago. At age 61, having barely ridden a bike for yrs, I cycled to the coast and back to pick something up. (18 miles?). I was inspired by the cyclists using our newly created LTN. Please d ... [more]

A section of the Cambridge busway is set to close next week due to safety concerns. I’ve come to check out what it’s all about. Read all about it in next Tuesday’s blog.

A classic of the genre - look at the SUV to get a sense of just how far a pedestrian must walk to cross this road

Anatomy of a near miss: a short thread. This is Wildman Street in Kendal. It's one way. Motor vehicle traffic uses both of the two lanes you see here, with most traffic going straight on, over the bridge you see ahead, and hence most tra ... [more]

Found the Embarcadero Freeway gravestone. Good riddance!

Wonder why no-one is choosing to use this cycle rack 🤔 Deangate, York They need protection with bollards like #176315 in Cambridge.

I see Parker's Piece has been left in a traditional state! @Sam_in_Cam @ACarpenDigital

Cycle lane outside football stadium is currently a car park. Yes that's a public car park in the other side of that fence.

Great that there is a gap for cyclists in this road closure in Ebor Street at long last. Pity the the design does not accomodate the width of the cargo bike or take note of design advice for a 1.5m gap for cyclists in LTN 1/20. @CityofYork ... [more]

Anybody spot the issue here? 👀 The diversion for cycling during #COP26 is a mess. It’s inaccessible. It’s not signed correctly. It’s not a route that people want that makes them feel safe.
